Spring Earrings

Hello my friends! Today I want to show you a new design. Yes, earrings!

Butterflies ear wires

 

I feel more confortable creating bracelets and necklaces. But for this occasion, I decided to create this design. The main reason why I create it is for a basic metalsmith class I took with Monique Michel, a local artist with more than 30 years in the jewelry design industry. And it was one of the most pleasant experiences I’ve had.

Spring EarringsThe butterflies are made of brass ( I cute them out by hand, using a jewelers saw) and soldered to a 20ga half hard sterling silver wire. And finally, add czech beads.  I like them so much 🙂  What you do think?

Take photos to earrings it’s a little bit tricky and I know I need a little bit more of practice.  But that’s a topic for another day. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Art Bead Scene March Challenge

Afonina-Taisia-Still-life-with-Pussy-Willows-per02bw

“Still Life with Pussy Willows” is the name of this beautiful painting, create by Taisia K. Afonina a well renowned Russian Artist.   This is kind of painting that I love and enjoy most, specially for the flowers, the colours and that feeling of a peaceful home. It’s a reminder that spring has arrive with colours, flowers and birds.

And talking about colours, here’s the color pallet for this challenge.
